Doppelganger - Milda Harris

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, thank you!


Citrus is already having a bad day, but things take a turn for the worst when she see's herself, already in class, making her History test. She's got a doppelganger...


I think this book would work better for teens a bit younger than YA, as the writing and story seem a bit too childish for YA. There's a lot of repetition, mostly at the beginning of the story. Citrus repeats over and over who her crush is and what nickname she dislikes. (and this while the world may come to an end!) Also, the main characters make some very illogical decisions. Like, it's so important I tell you this now, but I can't speak while we're driving. But as the characters are sixteen, I guess it's meant as a YA after all. 


My biggest problem with this book however is that we don't get to know anything really. It's very short, on my eReader it was only 130 pages, but there's going to be a sequel! Why not just make it a bigger book. The ending was quite abrupt, and not a single question as to why the Doppelgangers are here is answered... I'm always a bit disappointed if I'll have to buy another book to find out, especially as I don't really care for the characters and their childish/stupid decisions while faced with Doppelgangers.
